IVP (Intravenous Pyelogram)

What is Intravenous Pyelogram (IVP)?
An IVP is an exam utilizing contrast (dye) to visualize the kidneys, ureters and bladder.

What are the uses of IVP?
Intravenous Pyelograms are most commonly performed for analysis of renal or ureteral stones, chronic infection and hypertension and to exclude the possibility of tumor.

Is there any special preparation?
You need to pick up a bowel prep kit from your local pharmacy at least 18 hours before your scheduled exam time.

What is involved in the procedure?
The procedure is performed by injecting a variable amount of contrast (dye) into a vein. This material is excreted by the kidneys into the ureter and to the bladder. This substance will permit the radiologist to visualize the above-mentioned organs on x-ray film.
